The text said 1454 "cells", so I multiplied that by the number of
characters in each number (8).  Apologies if I misunderstood, but the
demo didn't really supply enough info to be sure.

Really?  The demo says it implements only part of the features of GNU
Emacs, but in return i is "more efficient and fast".  If that doesn't
mean mg is faster, then what does it mean?
